About us

Club Yachting is an RYA sailing, motor cruising and powerboat school run by Ovi – with help in the office from his wife Judith, and in the marina from our team of instructors and Adam and Martin our marine engineers.

Ovi completed his Fastrack course with Club Yachting. Recognised for his potential he became a Cruising Instructor and Yachtmaster Instructor before starting Soul Sailors to further develop his skills.

In 2017 he became Principal of Club Yachting and amalgamated the two schools to further expand his passion of making sailing fun for everyone!

Upon arrival

Upon arrival at your yacht one of our team will welcome you on board and allocate you a cabin, complete with duvet, feather pillows (non allergic available upon request) and two towels per person (hand and bath towel).

During the week we often visit other islands including: La Gomera, La Palma or Gran Canaria (where we go depends on the wind direction); and further afield on cruising and passage building weeks. Whatever we are doing you will visit a number of harbours and marinas, before returning to our base at the end of the week.
